Be honest, did you really wait the 6 weeks to be intimate with your S/O?

I did lol actually we waited 8 weeks. I had to reschedule my 6 week check up and I was too scared to get pregnant right away.

  • I had a HUGE episiotomy with my first. We tried at 8 weeks and it still hurt sooo bad. It actually hurt for over a year! UGH! So when the others came around, we waited until about 7 weeks each because I was too scared. Each time was totally fine, but I was still freaked out.

  • Yes we waited with all 3 kids, there are many other ways to have sex that dont involve penetration, I think too many people forget that or maybe they just are not creative enough who knows. My DH was more concerned with me healing then his sex drive lol dont get me wrong he has a high drive but there are always ways to work around penetration.

  • i'll probably have the worst answer..

    we waited 4 days afterward, even with an episiotomy. my husband came back on emergency leave from deployment so we haven't seen each other for months. i missed him so much. and it hurt sooo bad. i wouldn't recommend it. but i knew i only had 1 week with my husband before he went back so i wanted to make the most of it while he was here. that was with my first. we waited a week with my second. i was feeling great with no stitches and i jumped his bones. i guess the hormone imbalance set me off.
